‘Wind River’ Movie Review

Wind River banner

Based on true accounts, this murder mystery will keep you engaged the entire time with great acting and chemistry of the actors. The premise is to find out who killed a young woman found frozen in the snow…barefoot in the mountains. Some scenes are gory to watch yet it is a very good movie.  It was nice seeing two of the actors that we know as #Avengers, Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen, in good drama roles.

‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’ Movie Review

Finally, a good and funny shoot-em-up bang-bang Summer movie has arrived! This movie is full of good fight and chase scenes (sometimes a bit gory). Sam Jackson gets every opportunity to say every expletive he wants throughout this movie, lol. Entertaining to say the least.  There’s one outtake scene after credits.

‘The Dark Tower’ Movie Review

The Dark Tower banner 2

Having “not” read the books where this film is depicted from, I still wanted to see it because of the genre…nah…I think it’s because Idris Elba is in it!!! I do enjoy adventure/fantasy/sci-fi type movies and the latter of this movie delivered. It’s a slow start and I didn’t think there was good character development.  There was not an end credit scene.

‘Atomic Blonde’ Movie Review

If you’re an action (fight scenes) movie lover, then this is the movie for you.  I believe Charlize is trying to establish herself as an action villainess as her last two films have depicted her that way. The action takes place in Berlin and there are double agents everywhere.

‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’ Movie Review

Valerian movie

The storyline did not engage me at all. The lush colors and sci-fi creatures kept my eyes intrigued. The plot is weak and probably because there wasn’t a well known celebrity in a lead position, I was not entertained. I saw it in 3D and it’s probably not worth paying for.

‘Dunkirk’ Movie Review

dunkirk movie

This is probably the loudest movie I’ve ever seen/heard yet the loudness gives riveting realism to this war movie that is of course based on a true story. There’s not a lot dialogue to really explain what’s going on yet you will be engaged with every word spoken. I saw it in IMAX.

‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ Movie Review

War for the Planet of the Apes banner

Finally one in this franchise that I liked.  The storyline is good as it starts slow (especially with lots of subtitles) to build each character.  It seemed to me that the franchise has shifted to go in another direction and to me, it’s for the better.  The CGI is much better than in the other two.  Good action, humor and heart warming.
